Owner's Response: Thank you for the 4-star review on your stay at Sweet Surrender! The villa design is very well suited for your party of 5 adults and 2 children and we're glad you enjoyed your stay. Also, thank you for your understanding that a light fixture was on order and, therefore, inoperable during your stay and for contacting us on other minor maintenance issues we could attend to. CimmaronStJohn appreciates feedback both during and after our guests' stays and we look forward to welcoming you back to St. John!

The villa, views, amenities, and the whole nine yards was amazing. Everything was clean inside and outside. The manager was extremely helpful and polite. My wife and I got married at Trunk Bay on Nov. 13 and we were able to have our families stay at Sweet Surrender and they loved it as well!!! It was perfect and we are planning to return to Sweet Surrender next Nov. Thank you to all who made our vacation the best. Bret

Sweet Surrender

  • 5 of 5

Five stars for Sweet Surrender! I have visited St. John on many occasions and this villa was incredible, and we would definately like to stay there again.

Not only because of the sunset views, pool, king suites and layout, but also Cimmaron Rentals was by far the best company to deal with. Emily was professional and followed up before and after, and Dave delivered when we arrived and checked-in. Many companies, when you deal online, just give you the availability and cost and the rundown, but Cimmaron really went the extra step. (Villa owners take note!)

This was a perfect place and reasonable for two couples. Really enjoyed it! Thanks!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to stay at this wonderfully beautiful villa. Sweet Surrender is just that! Surrender yourself to this beautiful tropical island paradise and just enjoy. The environment is impeccably clean, top of the line appliances, with the most amazing outdoor area with the pool. We felt like kings staying here, and the services provided by Cimmeron St. John were top notch and more than excellent! Once you stay here, you will be spoiled and will want to come back for more! We sure do, and will!
